Ave, omnes!

You know you've been playing too much Caesar III when...


  • You can't get that USC Marching Trojans type music out of your head.
  • You find yourself greeting your family with "Hail!" instead of "Good morning!"
  • You begin to speak in a British accent (Of course, if you're British this probably won't seem very unusual).
  • You think it's unusual to see the President or Prime Minister on the news without a full wine cup.
  • You find nothing unusual in the government providing food, jobs, housing, medicine, religion and entertainment to the public. (So, okay, you Britishers may not find this so unusual anyway )
  • You can identify every Monty Python reference in the walker dialogue.
  • You know the walkers' names better than your children's (or pets).
  • You wonder just how much your property values would go up if someone erected a statue down the street.
  • You're seriously considering sending your President or Prime Minister several trained monkeys and a herd of zebras.

    Anyone have any more? Add 'em on!

How about this one:

Your wife kicks you out of the house because of all the time you spend on the computer, so you move out on the lawn and set up C3 in a tent and begin complaining due to the lack of even the most basic water supply.

Cheers,

You call your annoying little brother/sister a "barbarian"

You get mad because you didn't get any warning videos telling you your parents were about to enter your room while you were in the process of hauling up marble from the garden to your second story bedroom (it's heavy, trust me!)

Are we talking excesses here??? Too much C3???

Can this really happen?? Might be caused by the HGS Angel's who keep promoting this addiction...nah they have the same problem too.

We just keep adding more things to do...and C3 is always there to take care of our "Roman" needs.

When the lawn turns yellow..everyone in the family comments.."shall we put in wheat?? or Fruit trees?

When you call racing cucuits such as the F1 the Hippodrome and when you call soldiers legions.
Visit www.hungersite.com You can donate 1/4th of a cup of food there for free! When you donated, ads for sites which pay for the food come out. YOU click the button, the ads come out, and the companies deliver food to starving people. Do it now!

You have to remodel your house every time you go to the grocery store.
You switch to Hindu so you can upgrade to Small villa.
Your TV is broken and you expect It'll tell you whats wrong when you touch it with your mouse and right click.
You do the same thing with your toaster.
You call your local pool the "bath-house."
You actually use your "bath-house" to take a bath.
You replaced all of the .smk files with your favorite Ben-Hur clips(or for the more comedic approach, think History of the world part II).
And if you've seen History of the world, you wish you had a giant marijuana cigarette to fend off the roman army(my fav. part).
And for a more literal approach- You haven't slept for a week.

-You have an urge to conquer large parts of Europe (I'm still banned from France)
-You ask a blond girl walking past your house to give you a bath (minutes later you ask: "what seems to be the problem, Prefecture?")
-You give your spouse a lavish Christmas present..cheetahs (Bad kitty! You're suppose to use the litter box!)
-"Honk if you speak Latin" (*honk*)

It's 4am; I think I'll give this 'sleep' thing a try.

In an attempt to uninstall the program to quit cold turkey, you find that you hid the folder, installed a RAID setup for redundancy, and installed WindowsNT and password protected your game folder, just in case.

Ave,

You mentally convert the monitary exchange units to Denarii before you commit to making a purchase.

You determine the amount of goods you buy for home consumption based on the C3 housing usage rates.

Weekly, you throw out your tableware and immediately ask the nice marketlady to bring you more pottery.

When lying in bed at night and you here a train in the distance, and start thinking the desirability isn't high enough in your neighborhood. We will have to move if we want to live in a villa.

when you look at the setup of houses and shopping malls and start thinking, "Oh my God, these houses will starve if we don't build a marketplace near them!" and then you remember those houses have cars and can go anywhere to buy food my sister said she did this on one of those "I'm still sleeping" mornings..

when instead of listening to the teacher in class, or doing whatver I do during class (other homework, reading jokes, or just being in "wonderland"), you start scribbling the word CaesarIII on a piece of paper, and then at the end of class realize you've filled up a whole page with the word CaesarIII. yes, I've done that.... more than once...

When you find yourself scoring 121 competition maps..and don't have to use the overlays to know if fire coverage is adequate

Finding out that the "yellow" grass in your yard is not "really" suitable for farming..but needs help.

You slip up when greeting a friend...and say "Hail Caesar"..and never miss a beat with the conversation, wondering why your friend has this "distracted" expression on their face.

Drive into new housing development..and immediately realize that..if they had made the house lots 4x4...there could be Lux.Palaces built in there. No wonder they are making so many "gated communities" nowadays....hmmm?? to keep me in...NAH!!! the Market Lady..remember??..heehee

..nuff for this round

You know you've played too much when-

-You lock yourself in a room with beer,sandwiches and a camp toilet for a week to play C3

-You wonder why the horses at the ranch don't have armor on

-You worry about Nubians more than terrorists
